“Chhaliya”(1973), though a later offering as compared to the well known “Chhaliya”(1959), has ended up becoming an obscure movie. “Chhaliya”(1973) was produced by Sudesh Raj Gupta and directed by Mukul Dutt. The movie had Navin Nischol, Shatrughan Sinha, Nanda, Helen, Jairaj, Sajjan, Asrani, Manmohan, Bhagwan, Rajendra Nath, Sujit Kumar etc in it. The makers of this movie had bet “wisely” as they had signed up Navin Nischol in lead role, who looked the next big star ( apparently following in the foot steps of Rajesh Khanna). The fact that that film fell flat at the box office had several side effects. Apart from the fact that Navin Nischol failed to liveup to his early promise was one, and the fact that Nanda’s days as a leading lady in Hindi movies(that was looking up after the suceess of “The Train” in 1970) came to a grinding halt.

The Indian audience truly bathed in Ecstasy and exhilaration to enjoy such a variety of joyous feast of optical and aural treat !

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The write up on this music director by AK ji (see here) opens with the lead in comment, that “. . . his music towers over his films”.  I am whole heartedly in agreement with this comment.  As he goes on to say that just “. . . one song of his – “Paas Baitho Tabiyat Bahal Jaayegi” (‘Punarmilan’, 1964) sung by Rafi Sb is enough to give him immortality.”  And then one reviews the list of films with him as the music director – ‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’ (1961), ‘Punar Milan’ (1964), ‘Ek Saal Pehle’ (1965), ‘Chale Hain Sasural’ (1966), ‘Suhsila’ (1966) aka ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ (1977), and then of course the iconic ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ (1975) – the film that gave its run for the money, in a stiff competition to the big time grosser of the same year (viz. ‘Sholay’), and still continues to be on the list top grossing films of all time.  About two decades of active work in the industry, with just sixteen films listed against his name.  But then, as AK ji says, it is just one song that confers immortality on him.

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s… Song No. 12
—————————————————-

Today’s song is from the 1957 film Ustad.

Ustad was one of those Detective movies that Ashok Kumar has become a specialist in. He was the undisputed choice of all film makers for this genre of films. He too did justice to such films. However, may be due to his age or looks, or due to the nature of this genre, his Heroines in these films were often from the second rung or or else his old companions like Nalini Jaywant, Kamini Kaushal etc. Kumkum, Geeta Gali, and some such actresses acted with him in such movies. Of course Madhubala and even Nutan acted with him in such films.
